Gallery: What To Do In Madrid

Despite being the country’s Capital, Madrid does not seem to enjoy the reputations of city’s such as Barcelona or Seville. Sadly, it is a city which cannot be experienced in just a few days; but to spend a bit longer there allows you to discover its real beauty.

The gallery aims to show that Madrid deserves its spot as one of Spain’s most interesting destinations, and one which can hold its own as a world renowned travel spot.

While a booming industrial city, the centre of Madrid is home to many ancient and historical sights. Museums and Palaces are a nice reminder of this, yet it is just as nice to grab a coffee and tapas and enjoy the Plaza Mayor!
